What was your first Snowsports experience and where? My dad taught me to ski when I was 3 at Hemel Hempstead ski centre when it was an outdoors slope. 

What’s the best thing about being an instructor at The Snow Centre? The best thing about being a ski instructor at the snow centre is not one day is the same! I meet new people every day and teach them a skill I love. 

One single tip you would give to anyone taking part in Snowsports… One single tip I would give to anyone considering taking part in snow sports is don’t take it too seriously! Skiing is an open sport and everyone learns at different speeds, so try to make it enjoyable. 

Best Snowsports memory? My best snow sports memory is skiing in Finland at the RUKA resort. The resort is the most amazing I’ve ever been too! - at around 3pm every day the sun goes down the the slope lights come on and it just feels like you’re skiing in a winter wonderland.

The word from the slopes

  • “Love it here. Great slope and the staff are really friendly. Also love the Alpine bar and viewing area. So pleased to have it back.”

  • “Incredible welcome and help from the staff! First trip back since before lockdown and it was well worthwhile. Lovely welcome and talk through the new set up. Then my son had an issue with his own kit and the guys couldn’t have been more helpful - very kind and very knowledgeable. The snow as good as ever and the cafe a good finish to a great time. Thank you all!”

  • “The Hemel ski centre has a great atmosphere, the instructors are friendly and helpful, it’s just an all round really well run place”

  • “Had a great time at the snow centre, went once before lockdown and was good to be back. I had a one on one lesson which was good but went too quickly. I’ll try to book two lessons on the same day so I can keep up with progress. It was all well managed and seemed to have good Covid measures in place.”
